Saddle Fit

One of Saddle Up’s top priorities is to make sure our customers get a correct fitting saddle for both them and their horse. We know a correct fitting saddle is key to optimum performance, safety and connection with your horse. Offering saddle fitting’s on and off site is our way to try to ensure you are getting the best fitting saddle possible. You can bring your horse and trailer to our location, make your selection of saddles and try them on right at our shop or pick out the saddles of your choice and we will bring them to your location. If you’re purchasing online we also care and want to make sure it’s the right saddle for you, so we give you 7 days from the date the saddle is received to make sure it’s exactly what you’re looking for!

Saddle fittings on site are of course no charge. We always appreciate a call to schedule or when you’re heading over so we can stagger the fittings. Off location we charge a $50 fitting fee and $1.00 a mile to your location (not round trip).

Call us at 303-772-7821 to schedule a saddle fitting either on or off site!

How do you know if you may have improper saddle fit issues?

  • Does your horse seem anxious or nervous? 
  • Does your horse seem fussy, wanting to bite or kick?
  • Is your horse pinning their ears, tossing their head, dancing & swishing their tail?
  • Has performance declined since you made a change? 
  • Does your horse have white spots on his/her back?
  • Does your horse have an uneven sweat pattern on his/her back after riding?

If your saddle...

  • Constantly needs re-adjusting
  • Leaves a bridge on your horses back
  • Causes you to sit down on your horse’s spine
  • Causes dry or white spots on shoulders from improper rubbing
  • Cinch needs to be over tightened
  • Rolls forward or backward 

We can help you get a proper fit! Without it you and the horse are working against each other so there may appear to be problems when you are saddling, mounting, dismounting, riding, performing or changing leads, when really the horse is simply uncomfortable. 

A quote from Dick’s granddaughter... "Do you like having a horse? So isn't it important that the saddle fits because it’s not fair for them to carry you around and not be comfortable!"
